Novus Biologicals Announces Three New Lipid & Metabolism Antibodies

Three new antibodies for lipid and metabolism research were announced today by Novus Biologicals.  These new lipid antibodies include a Pyruvate Carboxylase antibody (NBP1-49536), PGAM1 antibody (NBP1-49532) and GLUT4 antibody (NBP1-49533).

The Pyruvate Carboxylase (PCB) antibody was made using SDIX's Genomic Antibody Technology.  The genomic peptide was made to an internal region of the human Pyruvate Carboxylase protein (within residues 930-1050). This rabbit polyclonal anti-PCB antibody cross-reacts with bovine, human, mouse, porcine and rat, and is useful for immunocytochemistry, immunohistochemistry and Western blot analysis. Pyruvate Carboxylase catalyzes the carboxylation of pyruvate to oxaloacetate and is involved in gluconeogenesis, lipogenesis, insulin secretion and synthesis of the neurotransmitter glutamate.

Novus' new PGAM1 antibody is a rabbit polyclonal and cross-reacts with mouse and human. PGAM1 belongs to the phosphoglycerate mutase family and is an important enzyme in the glycolytic pathway. This PGAM-1 antibody was positively validated for use in immunocytochemistry, immunohistochemistry and Western blot analysis on both HeLa and Jurkat whole cell extracts.

The immunogen to which the new glucose transporter antibody (GLUT4/SLC2A4) was made is a synthetic peptide made to an internal portion of the human GLUT4 protein (between residues 480-530). This GLUT4 antibody is useful for immunocytochemistry, immunohistochemistry and Western blot, and cross-reacts with human, mouse and rat. In response to insulin, GLUT4 translocates from low density microsomes to the plasma membrane, thus is a essential protein in the study of Diabetes.
